The Little Issues E-newsletter #360 – Life, laughter, and plenty of nice meals!


Welcome to the weekend, my pals! I’m a wee bit climate obsessed proper now. I can’t get sufficient of the nice and cozy sunshine this week. I’ve been making an attempt to get exterior, even when it’s only for a brief stroll, on daily basis.

We have now chilly wet days on the best way subsequent week and I’m wanting ahead to them. I really like cozy sweater days and I don’t assume we’re going to have many extra of them this spring.

ON THE BLOGS this week: These straightforward, skillet-fried pork chops with balsamic and dijon are an superior weeknight meal that comes collectively in underneath 20 minutes. I serve them with Rosemary Roasted Potatoes and Oven Roasted Asparagus and there may be hardly a chew left over on the finish of the meal.

Zucchini, mushrooms, and sausage are tossed with penne in a spicy sauce for a simple dinner win on this easy skillet meal.

Strawberries Romanoff is nearly essentially the most scrumptious factor I’ve made currently. My good friend Lynne was right here just a few weeks in the past once I made this to {photograph} it and we might have eaten the complete recipe on our personal. I in all probability shouldn’t admit this stuff, however yeah, we did that.

Holy, jaw-drop-level, nearly unbelievably scrumptious recipe. I stood on the range just about inhaling this Broccoli Mushroom Casserole after the primary style. (Yeah, I see what I simply wrote, but it surely actually is that good!) I began with only a chew of broccoli after which a mushroom. However then, effectively, I wanted to style the rice too, proper?

Have you ever tasted a Flourless Chocolate Cake? In that case, you’ll probably always remember that first chew. Unassuming in look and nearly ridiculously straightforward to make, this cake is a incredible decadent deal with. Additionally, if there may be one factor it’s essential know learn how to make from scratch, I vote that you already know learn how to make whipped cream. Think about it a life ability.

Lemon Ice Cream is creamy wealthy ice cream with an surprising and fully contemporary brightness from the lemon. If you happen to nonetheless aren’t satisfied that it’s essential do this, my oldest son selected this ice cream over chocolate ice cream two nights in a row and he’s declared it to be top-of-the-line ice lotions we’ve ever made.

What I’m CRAVING: It’s nearly embarrassing how usually we purchase frozen hen taquitos from Costco. (If you happen to haven’t tried them, they’re made with flour tortillas they usually’re actually extra like flautas.) In any case, I’m simply saying, my household actually likes them. This recipe for hen flautas caught my eye this week and I’m considering it’s time to make them myself. They appear about as straightforward as might be and the variations might be countless. 

My FAVORITE THING this week is that this purple enameled coated casserole skillet. I’m obsessive about these enamel skillets. I purchased this one just a few months in the past and have shared it with you in numerous recipes already. I discovered this attractive purple one by Lodge this previous week. The Amazon one is somewhat wider, whereas the Lodge one is a tiny bit deeper and feels somewhat heavier.

I can’t say that I’ve a desire between them proper now, I actually like them each. I’ll hold you posted as I proceed to make use of them although. If you happen to favor to purchase American-made merchandise, I feel the Lodge skillet is effectively well worth the barely greater worth. 

What I’m READING: The Lady They Left Behind by Roxanne Veletzos. This ebook is the impossible-but-true life story of the writer’s mom. Paying homage to Sophie’s Alternative, the kid’s Jewish mother and father had been pressured to depart her on the doorstep of an condo constructing in Bucharest in 1941, hoping to guard her from the approaching struggle.

They left her with a word that learn, “In anguish and despair we launch this little one into the arms of God, with the hope and religion that she could also be saved.” That little one, the writer’s mom, is dropped at an orphanage and is ultimately adopted by a Christian household. 

If I’m being trustworthy, this ebook drags a superb bit at instances and I turned so irritated with the principle character at one level I almost stopped studying the ebook. Regardless of the actual fact I set the ebook down a number of instances, I’m glad I completed it, because the ending was each surprising and wonderful. It’s a stable four-star learn for me and I do suggest it.

“Love is affected person, love is type. It doesn’t envy, it doesn’t boast, it isn’t proud. It doesn’t dishonor others, it isn’t self-seeking, it isn’t simply angered, it retains no file of wrongs. Love doesn’t enjoyment of evil however rejoices with the reality. It at all times protects, at all times trusts, at all times hopes, at all times perseveres. Love by no means fails. However the place there are prophecies, they’ll stop; the place there are tongues, they are going to be stilled; the place there may be data, it would move away.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV

Wishing you a stunning week stuffed with little issues that make you smile!
